Appropriate resource allocation is vital for the successful delivery of acute pain medicine services. This chapter describes core concepts in acute pain medicine (such as use of multimodal analgesia and pain protocols) and reviews the economic considerations regarding acute pain medicine program development and implementation, including consideration of value-based models that are intended to promote efficient, high-quality care at a lower cost. Notably, while many of the principles may be universally applicable, the underlying context regards deployment of acute pain medicine programs within healthcare settings in the United States. The chapter concludes with a section on future directions in acute pain medicine.
